Very Versatile Mic
Vox Lover, 02.08.2019
Super mic for the money, with the features I was looking for. Condenser with 4 patterns, so it works for all applications in the studio, Comes in a nice case, with a shock mount, and has the feel and the look of a quality mic from AKG. Super frequency response, tho it may need a bit of EQ tweaking depending on the room. Works well with vocals and acoustic instruments, as well as close miking of guitar cabs.

A bit flat
Eli Thorne, 18.06.2020
I tested this at home in my (not entirely soundproofed) studio. I work as a voice actor from home, and so i'm used to how my room sounds, but this came over as a bit compressed and flat to me. Especially the high end seemed dulled when compared to other condensors. Apart from that, I find it a bit ugly! I know it shouldn't count, but i'm shallow like that. Good that there's so much detail in choosing the patterns and cuts though.
